A girl in silence


Auburn waves drape over bruised ivory shoulders
Dark secrets hidden behind emerald eyes
Cries for help buried under coerced laughter
A scared child assuming the position of a brave adult
Makeup, and sleeves hiding many nights of pain
Pillows, soaking up a rapid tide of nightly tears
Falsified rays of hope, bringing her to silence
On this silence she chokes and breaks
Though as she was always taught
She leaves as she lived, without being noticed
